Hi Bob,

My relation James Donald Pead died of disease whilst a Prisoner of War of the Ottoman Turks on 30th July 1916. He is commemorated on the Basra Memorial in Iraq on Panel 60.

Do you have a photograph of panel 60 with James Pead's name on it ?? I would be eternally grateful.

many thanks
John

Hi Bob, my great uncle John Cullen 8928

Connaught Rangers "E" Coy. 1st Bn. is commentated on The Basra Memorial. Panel 40 and 64.
 

Would you have photos of these panels? I’d be so grateful if you could share these with me. 
 

Thanks a million,

Danielle

Bob,     What a project !  Thank you so very much for your generosity.  Would you be kind enough to check for the following soldier ?

Hello Bob

I've just joined the forum. I'm researching WW1 soldiers on a memorial in Stockport and saw this thread and thought I'd ask if you had a photo of a particular panel of the Basra Memorial

His name is James Kirkham - 8th Battalion Cheshire Regiment it says he panel 14 + 62

I'd appreciate it if you had a photo of his name - grateful thanks in advance

Many Thanks

Janet

Welcome to the GWF Janet,

You may not know this, but the Basra Memorial is in a very bad state of repair. Bob Pike might have a better image but here is one for starters (I may even have got it from Bob).

Lance Corporal Frederick Brown has his name on the Basra Memorial - 6th Battalion Kings Own Royal Lancaster Regiment - Panel 7

Many Thanks
